    Greetings from Tampa Bay, FL

    Hello All,
    Greetings from Tampa Bay, FL. We just built a pool this winter. This is our 1st pool, I think we did good, but I have some questions I will ask in the forums.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Re: Greetings from Tampa Bay, FL

    Thank You All. I did the entire design myself and handed it off to the pool company to price and build. Still have to build an enclosure around my equipment to get it out of the FL sun. Also pre-piped Natural gas for a fire feature, and fire place. Also Pre-piped a pool supply line for a future Water Slide/Fall. Some of the Feature Control Valves are manual and want to swap them out to be controlled by the system. Still need to install lighting and furniture. Also want to add the Aqua Connect. Pool Cost was at the Max I wanted to spend, so had to leave some items off to add later.
